Following last month's
highly acclaimed installment, I think it's safe to say that everybody is now sufficiently primed for author David Mack
to take on the baton and deliver us A Ceremony of Losses
(a fitting title for a David Mack novel if there ever was one
), the third installment in the The Fall
saga. Between the backcover blurb and a recent interview
, hints are this one may just bring resolution (or at least significant advancement) to the arc of the Andorian reproductive crisis, a story that, impressively, has been with us for more than a decade now. Official street date: October 29th.
A taut, no-nonsense official blurb follows:
THE NEEDS OF THE MANY
Despite heroic efforts by Thirishar ch’Thane, the Andorian species is headed for extinction. Its slow march toward oblivion has reached a tipping point, one from which there will be no hope of return.
THE NEEDS OF THE FEW
With countless lives at stake, the leaders of Andor, the Federation, and the Typhon Pact all scheme to twist the crisis to their political gain—at any price.
THE NEEDS OF THE ONE
Unwilling to be a mere bystander to tragedy, Doctor Julian Bashir risks everything to find a cure for the Andorians. But his courage will come at a terrible cost: his career, his freedom . . . and maybe his life.
